  • Metals and Ceramics

    Art Adventures YA! (Young Adult) Day Camp hosts students in grades 6-8 to OCAC’s professional arts studios under the guidance of working artists and arts educators. The Spring Break Camp session is comprised of two in-depth art workshops. This intensive exploration of two different studio techniques provides the developing teen boundless opportunity for self-expression and personal exploration. The needs of middle school students are unique and we thrive on finding a creative balance with this age group. The YA! Day Camp is an ideal starting point for any youth interested in pursuing art at a more complex and rigorous level or just interested in exploring a creative idea.

    At the end of the week, we welcome both family and friends to come to campus at 4:00pm for our Friday Art Walk. This is a chance to share their artwork with families, friends, camp staff and other artists.

    YA! Metals & Ceramics
    Our metals workshop is a wonderful and rare chance for middle school students to explore an ancient medium and the techniques to create small-scale projects such as jewelry, sculpture, functional items and decorative metal pieces. Each Metals Instructor focuses on different techniques to produce wonderful projects. Examples of projects might include wire sculpture and explore how to use line three-dimensionally, cutting flat sheets to create forms that move, surface design and stamping to create literary metal pieces or wearable art, and small scale forming and bending of metal to create jewelry. Every metals class is unique, and offers different skills for campers to explore in the wide field of metals.

    Ceramics is a very hands-on workshop! We have two different processes that campers focus on in the ceramics class. The first process is learning to work on the wheel in the ceramics studio. Students learn to center the clay and form and build throughout the week. This means campers come away with thrown objects that can be used functionally, or as art pieces. The second process is hand building. Campers make sculptural objects when hand-building- exploring the limitless possibilities of forming clay. All projects are fired and either glazed or painted, so they come away with wonderfully finished pieces.

Our camp links creative problem solving with exploratory learning, all directly tied to children’s imagination and a desire to create.

If your camper is not quite ready for that long of a day, you are welcome to come pick your camper up early. We do offer a quiet time in the afternoon, where campers listen to music, read or listen to stories while on their quiet time mat for 30 min. By the end of the week, many campers have a little nap during this quiet time, as these are busy camp days!

    At the end of the week, we welcome both family and friends to come to campus at 3:30pm for our Friday Art Walk, where campers can show off their work and the creative camp studio and parents can meet the teaching artists.

    Additional supervised care is available from 8am-9am (Before Care) and from 5pm-6pm (After Care). Before/After Care is offered as a package for an additional fee of $30 per session.

  • Mark making is a primal urge dating back at lest 40,000 years. Mark making is the use of any material that has the ability to mark any surface or substrate. It can be paint on canvas, ink or pencil on paper, scratched marks, digital art tools on a screen, or a tattoo on skin. Marks can be gestural, structured, loose, and controlled. Artists use a variety of marks to express their feeling and emotions in response to something seen or something felt. In this class we will explore the basics of mark making from charcoal, walnut ink wash and white-out correction pens, and xerox transfer, to alternative art making. Such as making art from the throw-away and painting with charcoal and acrylics on plastic. We will delve into bundling as a way to archive personal items and build a sculpture at the same time. We will also investigate mono printing and cold wax and encaustic wax as final surface finishes on artworks.
